Stampin’Up! Apothecary Art and matching framelits

Hello there I hope you are having a great weekend, I had such a busy week this last week and i will carry on from where I left it. I showed you the first lot of projects we made at the last card club and here’s the other two.

First an easel card


A combo of Basic Gray, Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze and a touch of Pear pizzaz. The pleated ribbon is just fabulous and I cannot stop using it. I have also showed how to make this fabulous looking label for our sentiment from the Curly Cute Set. The framelits make for perfectly shaped mats and this one was topped with a flower bloom made with 3 of our fabby punches. The new Blossom punch, Scallop Circle punch and the Boho blossom punch. Here’s a better view

The layers were punched from designer paper and held in place with an Antique Brad.

and the third project and my favourite was this one


Simple but eye catching!! Cherry Cobbler and a hint of Baja Breeze with pretty lace and seam binding. I love this card and the grouped elements. The Apothecary stamp set makes for fabulous backgrounds as well as used on their own as focal points. Here we simply stamped it in Basic Black onto very vanilla and cut out with the Framelits and adhere it to the card base.

The Butterfly is a Stampin’Up! exclusive die and it was embossed using the Big Shot machine and the Lattice Square embossing folder. Another antique brad holds the sentiment and the die cut shapes in place.

I have one more project to show you using the same set, I know I am like the busses *wink*

This was the project I have sent to all my Virtual Clubs with their April orders. A wonderful gift bag and the video tutorial with step by step instructions and measurements.

Pretty in Pink Pear Pizzaz  and Very Vanilla

The flowers were coloured in using markers and more pleated ribbon, lace an antique brads were used to add visual interest.

One of my Virtual Clubs finishes in May and I have another one starting straight away, if you wish to be part of it and enjoy the hostess benefits without spending £150 in one order please contact me to reserve your place.
